|+3 Boat scam |
It was all to good to be true, he starts off by telling you he is on a gas rig in New Zealand on 15 days on 15 days off.
Buying the boat for his family as a present, he will organise transport via his courier company, who does he think he or she is kidding. He wanted me to pay the courier fee of $1300, this money was then transfered to a western union account, at the same time he deposits the sale price of the boat plus the courier fee into my bank account.
Remember the name.......Matthew Boyle

Same as above, army, deployed, courier would pick up, see attached actual email, Where is it located at the moment?what's your final price?Why are you selling it?does it need anything to be replace or repair?I'm cool with the condition as described on the advert.I'm an Army and i have been currently deployed .We do not have access to phone at the moment and that's why I contacted you with internet messaging facility.Regarding the payment, I can pay you through direct bank deposit (EFT),using PayPal instant bank wire transfer service.I will need your Account name,BSB and Account number. If you are not comfortable with that, you can set up a PayPal account properly at www.PayPal.com.au and I will make the payment through PayPal,this way, all I will need is your PayPal email address. I have also contacted my courier who will come for pick up and deliver it to my place in Darwin after the whole fund has been cleared into your acct.With the issue of my details,transferring the name of ownership and signing of all paperwork will be done by the pick up agent.If you are not comfortable with that, you can cancel the registration and i will buy Unregistered.
